Andrew Smith :

Is this on hot water and heating, one or the other?

Andrew Smith :

Can you turn the heating on then turn the boiler off on the thermostat and still see if it trips?

JACUSTOMER-htlvt072- : The boiler fires up for 5 minutes cuts out restarts after 5 minutes cuts out probably 3 or 4 times before tripping , this produces hot water but no heating in the rads
Andrew Smith :

It will not be the boiler, it will be the pump or motorised valve, you can confirm this by turning your heating and hot water on and turning the boiler off at the boiler tehrmostat
